It has taken us all the way to the end of the pledge to let go of pride and donate $10 a month!  we could not do this last year but after prayer we are overjoyed to be able to donate to KLOVE.  We watch very little TV so KLOVE is on in our home for hours and hours everyday.  We homeschool our 6 kids and allow them to freely listen to KLOVE and we don't have to worry about the lyrics and we can rest in knowing they are being fed the goodness of God at the same time.  The kids know all the words to the songs and we randomly hear them singing.  Our girls Sarah and Laura have called in to KLOVE and have spoken to Sterling several times.  One time i was listening by myself in the kitchen  when Laura (age 10 ) called in and asked Sterling to pray for me and the baby i was carrying (and have since delivered!).  Sterling prayed right then and there on the air for us and it was precious.  This is just a smidge of what we are blessed with by the ministry at KLOVE and it is worth much more than the $10 a month we are able to give (for now).  Thank you for providing a positive radio station that blesses so many. Congrats Sterling!!  Thanks Scott and Kelly for being so much fun to listen to in the afternoon.  I tried to pledge online 4 times!  and all times it would NOT take my donation.  i called in and the front desk said another caller had the same problem...our prayer is that nobody gives up trying!!!  it is worth the effort.  God bless.

i was on the scott and kelli facebook page and a woman named Rebecca wrote this... "Ok, if every single fan of this page were to give a one time gift of $5.00 that would be $569,035.00! I already give $80.00 a month on the easy gift plan and a one time gift wouldn't be that hard to add to what I've already given this month. Anyone else care to give a Facebook Fan $5.00? " wow what an observation! i already give 40 a month ant yet i could do 5 dollars right now and not even notice it. im going to. NOW I CHALLANGE ALL THE FANS ON THAT PAGE TO DO SO. I HOPE YOU AIR THIS SO EVERYONE KNOWS THAT ALASKA IS STEPPING UP TO THAT CHALLANGE! thanks to Rebecca Dawn Adams Rowe for your post on facebook

Give 'til it Hurts- My wife and I recently attended the Make a Difference Tour in Glendale. We weren't sure we could afford it, but with a volunteer opportunity and a generous tour behind-the-scenes Lori, we received comp tickets. As you know the concert aims to raise World Vision sponsorship.  We already sponsor one child (thanks to a Mark Schultz/Point of Grace World Vision concert) and the thought had crossed us to sponsor another child, from Peru, my birthplace.  Well we saw plenty of Peruvians on intermission, but did not committ. After the show was over, I wanted to go to a different sponsor table to see the other children there.  My wife wisely said we should not be picking who we help out.  Now in my head I made sense of how to make ends meet and thought OK we can do this.  So we went back to the first table and the volunteers there laughed because it was our fourth time there.  My wife walked around grabbed a boy from Lesotho (where our already sponsored child is from) and then continued to pick two Peruvian children we had seen.  She said OK these three.  I laughed and said all 3?! And she said yes.  Now let me tell you, minutes earlier I prayed within myself that I will let my wife take lead on the decision. In the honor of integrity I laughed outloud, became teary eyed and said OK.  We are now sponsoring 4 children, but here's the best part: When we got in the car to go home, Lynda, my wife said that she had been praying about it and for whatever reason the number 3 came to her and it was then that she knew that we had to take all three.  Lynda also said that the Matthew West song In My Own Little World's lyrics that I never give 'til it hurts was the catalyst for this MAD moment.  As she said that we had K-Love on the background and I immediately, without a shadow of a doubt KNEW that the next song to play would be Matthew West.  Sure enough the Lord and K-Love delivered and we heard the very same words that led my wife to this loving act!  Let me tell you, we have an 15 month old and a baby on the way and we are a one income family.  I am not a doctor nor a lawyer but work in a call center.  We live in faith and have been blessed and we want to share those blessing knowing that the Lord will always provide.  We are also proud supporters of K-Love and encourage others to go step out of the boat.  Please sponsor K-Love!

My Pets Live Better Than Billions of Human Beings

My Pets Live Better Than Billions of Human Beings

I looked at my Boston Terrier, Boggs, through tears this morning, realizing that he lives better than everyone that I had just met on this journey to take Love Around The World with World Vision. That humbled me to no end.  I love my pets, they don’t eat anything extravagant, go to doggie daycare, or require a whole lot of grooming, but I spend more to feed my pets every day than it costs to sponsor a child through World Vision.

I was sharing this with a friend, who said, “well, my dog is little, I don’t spend more than $40/month to feed her”, and than it hit her, that is more than $35/month that it takes to sponsor a child.  I love our pets, they are wonderful, but I guess what hit me was how I don’t think twice about caring for them, and yet how often do we wrestle with helping a fellow human being in need. 

Last year, $52 billion was spent on our pets… $52 BILLION.

I was in tears because I realized that my dogs live better than the billions we met in every corner of the World.  My pets never want for food, they always are warm, safe and dry, they have clean water, they get medical attention when they need it… Yet billions of kids do not.

I am not asking you to give up your pets, or not care for them… I am just wondering if you wouldn’t help a child whose family lives on less than a $1/day, less than it costs me to feed my pets.  Helping a child through World Vision costs only $35/month, the amount of love, care and hope that World Vision provides to a child for such a small amount of money is AMAZING!  Seeing how child sponsorship transforms these children, their families and the communities that they live in is no less than miraculous.

In James, 1:27 it says,
“Anyone who sets himself up as “religious” by talking a good game is self-deceived. This kind of religion is hot air and only hot air. Real religion, the kind that passes muster before God the Father, is this: Reach out to the homeless and loveless in their plight, and guard against corruption from the godless world.”

I love that James doesn’t mince words, describing “religion” that is all talk as “Hot Air”, and in describing “Real Religion.” James describes exactly what I have witnessed World Vision doing around the world...  “Reaching out to the homeless and loveless in their plight”.  I hope that you’ll join us in demonstrating “Real Religion”, religion that passes the “muster of God the Father”.

Help World Vision care for the “least of these”!  Sponsor a child today!
